I have a chronic nasal allergy. Every day it gets blocked and have depend on a nasal drop which opens it up.
Stop nose drops: Read the nose drop package insert. It would tell you not to use it for more than several days. If you use the otc decongestant drops regularly , your congestion will only get worse.

Associated symptoms: Persons with nasal allergy typically have congestion, clear nasal discharge, itchy and watery eyes. If symptoms last more than one week, a viral cold is unlikely. If the drainage changes to anything other than clear, it may be infected (sinusitis). Colored drainage suggests infection, but clear drainage does not rule it out. Many allergic symptoms are seasonal, but not pet or dust mite allergy. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not much: Although levo ceterizine is a third generation antihistamine, there is little difference between that drug and ceterizine (zyrtec). They are both fairly non-sedating antihistamines and are approved for allergic rhinitis. Their efficacy and safety are essentially the same. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Maybe: Could be food allergies or intolerances (notice how long after you eat a suspect food this starts), but more likely inhalant allergy or reaction to pollution or smoke. Cleaning up your diet with fresh veggies, fruits, fiber can help, avoiding the "whites" refined sugar, flour, etc and chemicals found in diet foods. Powdered (not tablet) vit c (3000 mg) helps symptoms, butterbur, quercetin, too. ...Read more
Possibly: There is no absolute yes or no answer. Immunotherapy, which can either be with allergy shots or allergy drops addresses the fact that your body is making antibodies to allergic proteins. There are people that go on allergy shots and their symptoms go away and never come back. However, that is not always the case. All medications do is treat symptoms. Medicine is not a cure for allergies. ...Read more
With Caution: The use of herbs is a time-honored approach to strengthening the body and treating disease. Herbs, however, can trigger side effects and interact with other herbs, supplements, or medications. For these reasons, you should take herbs only under the supervision of a health care practitioner.

Can i take one 10 mg cetrizine hydrochloride tablets (10 mg) daily, for more than one month, if it helps me to control my nasal allergy?
Yes you can: Cetirizine or zyrtec is a very safe medication and you can take it every day for months if it is enough to control your allergy symptoms. Over the counter saline nasal spray or rinse might help your nasal symptoms a bit too. If those are not enough to control your symptoms or you have frequent sinus infections or cold/flu like symptoms, you might need to come see a local allergist to be evaluated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Allergies: The latest and greatest are the new and dry nasal aerosols. They work wonderfully well but take a little getting used to and insurance never wants to pay for them. I reserve them for my most congested or patients with nasal polyps. Dymista is a combo of Flonase and astelin....Nothing new but it combines two meds and is only a single spray twice daily. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A lot: Regular or over-the-counter sprays usually contain saline, decongestants (eg afrin (oxymetazoline) and generics with similar ingredients), and even capsaicin. These tend to not provide lasting effects. Prescription sprays are safer than decongestants, and more effective. These come as either steroids or antihistamine sprays. ...Read more
